Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has revealed that many hours of studying the opposition help increase his chances of making vital saves.

The Bafana Bafana custodian was at his best in Durban on Wednesday night, making some fine saves, including a penalty stop from Rhulani Manzini, to help Amakhosi earn a point from a 0-0 draw with AmaZulu.

Khune revealed after the match that many hours spent studying football on television assist in stacking in the odds more in his favour. 

"I've been doing a lot of homework about all the players in the PSL, even international players," he explained.

"I've watched a lot of football on television and that's what I invest in. This is our opportunity to show your class, to show your quality.

"I did my homework but I had two minds on whether he (Manzini) would hit it right on the top of the roof of the net or straight on the ground, but in the rain I knew he was going to make it skid on the ground so I had to delay it just a little bit, and thanks to my leg," he added.

The Glamour Boys stopper was however unhappy that his side were not able to claim victory over Usuthu.

"0-0 away from home, it is not a good result for us. I don't know who to dedicate this award (Man-of-the-Match) to because I don't think anyone deserves it, including me tonight.

"We didn't give the Amakhosi faithful what they deserve which is three points.

"The fans were with us through thick and thin. They were with us through the rain, but we didn't give them something worth watching. I'm very disappointed."
